Neumann has a program, the Trio Program, that I am a part of, and they have been so helpful to me and I would encourage everyone who is already a student, or a prospective student, to try to join. All you have to do is fill out an application and they will determine your eligibility. I signed up second semester of my freshman year, and it is one of the best decisions that I have made. If you are eligible you are assigned an advisor through the program who will help you (this advisor is different from your regular academic advisor). My advisor is Kristin, and she is a blessing! She has been so helpful since I joined the program. I meet with Kristin once a month and we go over my grades, my classes, how I am doing, she helps with everything. The program offers free tutoring, they help with my financial aid, they help me with my time management, and they help you plan for the future. At the beginning of each semester we meet and I set goals for myself, short term and long term. I find it so helpful because I am the type of person who needs structure in my life. I know that Trio has helped me make and maintain structure in my schedule. My grades have gone up because I know what I have to do now, I have a plan thanks to the Trio Program.
